I have to say I have been seriously impressed by the capabilities of the MuchMore cell master and the 4200's. It seems to do a better job than my turbo 35. Just my opinion.

Yup. The Cellmaster does it very well with 4200s. No doubt about it. Another charger that performs well on 4200 batteries is the Pro Trak. But it only does charge well with new and slightly used batts. It is very choosy on old loose batts. It won't charge them right.

Hi,For me i think the Orion charger is better,cause Orion is doing matching IB4200 cells,so,they do know how to take care the cells.
There are lot of good charger on the market,so,try to ask the Hobby shop or log on to The charger company to check the charger spec.

The Ice works great. But the chargers you have now will also work for them.

I am usin the Pulsar to charge my IB 38's and it is fine. I would not see why you could not charge the IB 42's or the GP 43's with them.

Actually not. LRP Pulsar Competition 2, Orion Advantage and Pitbull X3 are more expensive than the Cellmaster.

Your charger will work just fine. Save your money and upgrade when/if it becomes necessary.

The turbo 35 says it will only charge up to 3800... Can you actually get 4200+ out of it?
